About

The Masters program in Pathology, offered by the University at Buffalo, provides training in the biology of disease and injury and the tools for studying it.

Overview

Our research focuses on quantitative approaches for mining molecular and cell biological information to obtain insight into the mechanisms underlying pathology and healing processes.

Our program in Pathology offered by the University at Buffalo provides training in the biology of disease and injury with an emphasis on quantitative approaches for mining molecular and cell biology information.  Research by our faculty employs imaging, genetics, and cellular, molecular and biochemical analyses to examine biological function in a range of organ systems. Data from these varied approaches can be aligned with computational tools in order to gain novel insights into very complex phenomena and yield new understanding of disease mechanisms and treatments. We offer state-of-the-art instruction in both the biological principles and the quantitative methodologies.

Our program emphasizes research over didactic study.  Our faculty are engaged in research in cell and developmental biology, systems biology and informatics, bioimaging, and neuroscience.

Programme Structure

  • Required course work consists of a graduate seminar class and one-semester courses in Cell Biology, Histology, and Introduction to Pathology.  
  • The remainder of the program is developed on an individual basis but, in general, comprises interdisciplinary courses, courses in areas relevant to the student's research, and a substantial thesis prepared under the supervision of a full time department faculty member and committee selected by the student and faculty advisor.

Other requirements

General requirements

  • Academic background; i.e. college coursework.  A strong basic science background – chemistry, physics, math – is desirable, as is good performance in upper level biology courses
  • Personal statement and letters of recommendation. These provide a gauge of interest and commitment, as well as an additional indication of abilities
  • Research experience is a major plus because graduate training is very research-oriented, and so can be very different from one's undergraduate classroom experience
  • A personal interview may be requested of an applicant, either in person or by phone or internet, if the admissions committee desires further clarification of a student’s qualifications
